Dr. Rush is aided by Eli Wallace, a young scientist who helped him create the video game, using his expertise in mathematics. After a team of individuals that were able to solve the puzzle of the videogame have arrived at the base to help solve the mystery of the Stargate the base comes under attack. Dr. Rush realizes that the explosion that will be generated from the destruction of the planet will have enough force and generate enough energy to open up the Stargate and allowed upon its occupants to return to Earth again a one-way trip. However, things don't always work out according to plan. Especially when destiny gets involved as the individuals who themselves onto a ship for evacuation of the base they soon learned that they are not in direct control of the destiny.
